I came across this quote a while ago and absolutely agree with it: “The best foundation you can wear is glowing healthy skin”. There is only so much makeup can conceal!
I have dry and sensitive skin, and I absolutely hate it when my skin and lips randomly flake. I usually find it quite hard to find products for my skin type that actually work…until quite recently!
Here is my daily night time cleansing and hydrating formula I use, that I thought I would share with all of you.
Let’s go from right to left:
1. Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub, Himalaya– My mother had got this for me from India to try once and ever since then, I can’t go back. This gentle scrub is enriched with all natural antioxidants and encourages skin renewal leaving your skin soft and glowing after. You can order it online at amazon for $5.69. It also smells amazing!
2. Sensitive Night Cream, Burt’s Bees– Formulated with cotton extract and rice extract, this product moisturizes and replenishes your skin overnight. It also has a cooling feel to it which leaves me feeling fresh. You can get this from any pharmacy for $24.99.
*TIP! It is very important to apply both cleansers and moisturizers on to your face in upward, circular motions to prevent wrinkling!*
3.Lip Exfoliator, E.L.F– I am currently obsessed with this new discovery. This guy is infused with sugar, Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avacado, Grape and jojoba oils. It exfoliates your lips as well as nourishes and protects, leaving them looking nice and luscious. This can be applied the same way you would put lipstick on, but on damp lips after which you wash it off. Because E.L.F is not available in Canada yet, you can order this product from their website for $4.99.
4.Lip Therapy, Vaseline– For soft and supple lips, with a mixture of mineral oils and paraffin. Very important to put on after exfoliation. I love how easy it’s application is as well in it’s super accessible tub. You can get this from any pharmacy for $4.90.
5.Hand Cream, L’Essence De Boshea– You know what they say, your hands show the first signs of aging. It is important to take care of them because they do a lot of work throughout the day! This product is comprised of 20% Shea Butter, as well honey and rosemary. You can immediately feel your hands soften after one application. $20.99 from their website online, or at their stores.
6.Lavender body lotion, Crabtree & Evelyn– Lather this baby all over your body after your shower, and smell like a flower right before you go to bed. Consists of lavender oil, elderflower, magnolia and peony, which deeply condition your skin. Available online, and at their stand alone stores for $24.00.
Hope this was a knowledgeable read!:)
